U.S. House Speaker Highlight Conditions For Fresh military Assistance To Ukraine

Mike Johnson, the U.S. House speaker, has started laying out conditions for a fresh round of American military assistance to Ukraine, the strongest indication yet that the aid could pass within weeks.

The Senate already okayed a $9

5 billion aid package for Ukraine and Israel, but it has been stalled on Capitol Hill for months amid Republican opposition in the House. Johnson, who is facing pressure from the Biden administration and NATO allies to pass the aid, has been searching for a path forward on the bill that would provoke the least political backlash from the hard-right flank of his party.

Now the question appears to be not whether Mr. Johnson will allow aid to come to the floor, but in what form and when.
